American Maple Keepsake Chest. (The last photos show the chest in cherry) This chest is built to simulate the leather strapping used on old steamer trunks. In this case the strapping is steam bent walnut accross the top and continued down the front and back of the chest. The chest has brass hardware for the handles, lid support, hinges, escutcheon pins which attach the straps, and the half-mortised lock assembly. The construction on the corners and lid are all box joints. The top is constructed of nine mitered segments hand planed to a curved surface.

These chests are available in cherry and maple (shown) and also in oak. They are 16" long, 10" deep and 12" high. They will hold many of your precious keepsakes and will last a lifetime unlike imported items commonly available.

Additional features include decorative engraving on the front of the chest and a drop in tray also made of the same wood as the chest. The chest is finished with hand-rubbed coats of tung oil.

I am happy to do custom orders of this chest using different engraved designs on the front and different woods and finishes. Please send me an Etsy message if you are interested in a custom order.

This is a made to order item. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
